After 24 years of programming, I like to think I know everything at times -- but I am aware that I do not. All I ask of you is to be gentle at such times that I am spectacularly wrong.
Now, for an abbreviated history of my "career" at this site:
06/22/2004: Attained Master in the Microsoft SQL Server area (on my birthday, no less).
06/25/2004: Answered 100th question.
06/29/2004: Reached 100,000 points.
07/15/2004: Attained Guru in the Microsoft SQL Server area.
07/21/2004: Attained Master in the Databases area.
08/02/2004: First time as Featured Expert.
09/14/2004: Attained Guru in the Databases area.
12/08/2004: Attained Wizard in the Microsoft SQL Server area.
12/09/2004: Reached 500,000 points.
After this, my available time dwindled and has been erratic since -- so no further updates unless there is anything good to report.
